Brand new 3000 series washer is leaking from front bottom area

Our brand new, not even used yet - just tried to run a normal cycle to clean it out before using it for the first time, 3000 series front loading Maytag washer is leaking water from the front bottom portion of the washer. The water is not coming from around the door seal. We have the washer on a pedestal. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Maytag Frontloader (Perf series) brand new Agitator off axis

Okay! We just fixed this problem on our washer. First, be safe and be sure that the electrical cord is unplugged. Then you want to take the lid panel off of your washer. Then you'll feel around under the base of the agitator/washer basket. You should notice that its feet sit inside huge springs which are fixed to the base of the machine unit. Determine whether any of your basket feet are disloged from their spring and re-insert. Make sure the fit is good or else you might have the same problem again. After you reassemble, plug in the machine and try a test spin without any clothes. Then try with a smallish load.

Hopefully this helps.

If you hear of a solution, let everyone know. Our machine did the same thing. From the research I have seen, GE makes **** machines and I will NEVER buy a GE product again.

Is it normal for the washing machine to start and stop the spinning while the machine is in each cycle? Should it take over an hour to run one wash cycle?


Yes...they use less water...so they start, tumble, then cycle again adding more water. I use the fastest setting on all my clothes which is 1/2 hour. It also does start and stop during spinning to tumble the clothes. It speeds up as it goes thru each stop till it spins real fast. All my clothes wash perfectly on fastest cycle.

Planning to purchase a pair of 3000 Series Maytag Washer & Dryer. Is this a wise choice.


These days, everyone offers front loading washers and dryers. The things to know about them, is that unlike the old style top loading washers (and even the very old type of front washers from 20+ years ago) is that they function much differently.

First off, remember that you should only use He (High Efficiency) detergent and that the amount you'll be using is much less as well, so you'll have to change your habit of pouring in too much, as it will cause you problems.

You'll also need to get used to the different noises, or lack of, when the washer is running. Except for the spin cycle, you'll hardly know its running. Now about the spin cycle, most front loading washers go into "turbo" mode and get going very fast, which is great since it leaves the clothes barely damp in most cases when you take them out.

Now for the not so good issues with front loading washers. You'll want to also change your wash day habits by doing starting your laundry washing with the cold water washing first and finishing with your whites or hot water washing as the last load you do. The reason for this is that front loaders tend to retain just a little bit of water in them when they're done, and by doing the hot water loads last, you give the washer the best opportunity to keep any odor forming bacteria the least chance to start with.

Another key thing that none of the front load washer makers tell you to do is, keep the door of the washer open slightly when you're done with your laundry, as the door gaskets will hold some water and that is part of where the moldy smells, that many people experience, comes from. We've found that by doing that little thing, along with an occaisional wiping out of the door bellows gasket, keeps our washer from having any nasty odors.

Some folks recommend using special tablets once a month (Whirl-out), but I have an adversion to doing a "load" without clothes and hot water, and an cleaning tablet - seems to me that kinda of defeats the whole "less energy-less cost" premise of efficient front loaders. So by leaving the door open, we've avoided all that and haven' had the odor problems at all.

OK, by now you're wondering when I'm going to give you something on the Maytags you wanted to know about! Almost any front loading washer will do a great job and provide you with a decent working life. I prefer the GE, Maytag, Whirlpool, Kenmore, etc., but really don't like the LG's. My reasoning is that the LG's seem to have more issues with torn door gaskets and error codes than the others. While the LG's look nice and most folks buy them because they're so darned pretty, they are a disappointment in where it really counts, in my opinion.

So buy any of the American made washer/dryer units mention and you'll be very pleased with them, and by the way, the Maytag 3000 series, do look pretty nice too!

Take time to read your manual with your new appliances and you'll be ahead of most folks and get the best performance out of them for years to come!

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Clothes stink!


Odor from your washing machine is being transferred to your clothes.
The washer must be cleaned first or it will "reinfect" your clothing upon washing. The secret is to clean the "splash area" just above the normal waterline where suds and soiled water splash up and don't get rinsed out. To clean this area add a washer cleaner to a full load of laundry and wash in a hot setting. The added bulk of the laundry will raise the water level to include the splash area. During this cleaning intermittent pausing to soak will give the cleaner time to dissolve the moldy mess.
Also, leaving the door open makes the problem worse because it dries out the residue which makes it harder to remove.

The F21 signal keeps flashing.


f21 is long drain, failed to drain in 8 mins. f27 is overfill, overfill contacts on pressure sw closed. If unit did actually successfully drain normally then pressure sw is likely the problem.
1. did pump come on? if no replace pump
2. is unit draining at normal rate? no then clean pump.
if yes on both replace pressure sw.
to second poster if getting suds error when using HE then you likely are using to much detergent. If avail run a clean washer cycle.
or normal cycle with bleach or fabric softner, no clothes

1 1/2 PER LOAD


This is joyce
It is according to what cycle you have it set on and what kind of detergent you are using. if you use something other than HE detergent you may have a very long cycle, its trying to get all the suds out of your clothes, and yes the cycles do range that high.

LG WM1812CW washer smell


First, clean out the filter behind the access door on the lower left front of the machine. Residue left in the filter can contribute to odor issues. Second, buy a package of AhFresh or Whilaway and run a cycle with that, hot water, longest cycle. (unfortunately you do not have the sanitary cycle or the tub clean cycle on your model) Third, and most importantly, USE LESS DETERGENT. Top load washers use up to 45 gallons of water per cycle. Your machine uses 12. Use one tablespoon of HE detergent and one teaspoon of fabric softener (if you use softener) per cycle. My personal LG washer is now over 5 years old, and have only had an odor issue one time. I leave the door closed after I wash. (the tub is vented) Never have had any mold or mildew issues with my washer. Was doing several loads per day when I had 7 at home, now only doing 3 loads a week with all the kids, their spouses, and grandkid gone. Still no odor problems. Great machines if used properly. Note: the odor / mold / mildew issues are basically the same with any front load machine, regardless of brand, and most can be solved following the above advise. Good luck.

GE front loading washer - WBVH6240FWW


Most modern front loading machines have a ESTIMATED time display, this time can change based on the inputs from different sensors and water temperature. So this should be normal.
